is there any proposed newer versions than quirky 100 its a good os but a bit limited atm as it does not have sound drivers installed. is anyone working on this project? i believe quirky to be a more traditional puppy. and have had major issues with the puppy 5 series installing ubuntu apps broke my os too much so i gave it the flick after reinstalling several times.

Ans: See updated quirky version in the main post. And quirky is non-traditional puppy, an experimental one.
