Default Thoughts on cork flooring

We have a carpeted bedroom right now, and it is starting to wear. We have plans to paint the room and thought that would be a good time to replace the carpet, but with what? I have thought that cork would be a nice replacement, but I am wondering if anyone out there has cork flooring and how do you like it? How well does it hold up? Would it be a good choice for a bedroom? I am not overly crazy about carpeting and 80% of our house is nice teak laminate flooring. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Cork looks nice and is pretty durable.
It's spongelike so messes get absorbed.
It can last a while. There is a home older than 100 years old in the Newport, Rhode Island mansions district with cork in it. They have tours in several antique houses there.
