I watched a house go up in the next subdivision. They put glue (Liquid Nails?) on the floor joists, drop the plywood in place and nail it in place. I wish my house had the subflooring glued as we have a bunch of squeeks. If I was doing the job, I would glue it and fasten with screws. Nails will pull loose over time.
When I worked for an industrial supply house, I recall seeing an article in a trade magazine about a system that ran screws through a "magazine" like nails. You didn't have to bend over but stand up to drive the screws. Can't recall the company.
