Nope. It's as hard as Maple, the hardest domestic hardwood. It's
not nearly as porous and makes for a decent kitchen floor.
Bamboo is significantly harder than oak and not *NEARLY* as porous.
We put bamboo down in the hallways, dining room, and kitchen last
year. The only "negative" is that because the surface is so smooth
it water spots pretty badly. It's a piece of cake to clean though.
A damp mop is all it takes.
Bamboo is dirt cheap too, cheaper than even vinyl (though it's gone
up some recently):
