I agree 100% with the drywall.
Your also going to find MDF does not hold nails well and will sag between every support.
I'd pass on the job if someone asked me to do it that way.

Plaster ceilings would not be a DIY project by any means.
What part of what I said did you not understand?
Don't want to argue because it may be so is Cal. but in the U.S. all ceilings do not have to be drywalled.

Install with brad nailer or 16gauge nailer nail in bead groove and you don't have to go back and fill nail holes.
Takes paint well
I have used this stuff in bathrooms as wainscote. Cut it in 3 32" pieces, hold off floor the height of the baseboard, nail, reinstall base board, put a cap or chair rail on top, prime, paint the same as trim usually semi or gloss white.
Oh yea sell at HD for $21 a sheet.
this post you made here. what are you talking about? do you just mean beadboard like i was saying?
edit: ok yea i think you were just referring to beadboard. yea thats what i prefer to do

Yes it is thin solid wood beadboard that comes in 4x8 sheets. At my box store it is in the trim dept under the mouldings. The reason I suggested a 16 ga instead of a brad is the 16 has a head although small this should help on a ceiling.
