Any comments on what is best, or suitable, for 3/4 inch tongue and groove oak hardwood over 3/4 inch high quality(Advantex) weather resistant OSB tongue and groove subfloor? Nails or 2 inch staples?

Define 'nails'. Do you mean ribbed cleats?

If so, I saw results of a study of staples and cleats with plywood. Initially the staples hold better but over time with moisture cycles, the glue on the staple legs lost grip and the cleats were holding better. There are differences in quality of cleats, some have better ribs than others.

I don't know how that relates to OSB.
