Micropolis did soft sectored 100tpi. (and also made 48tpi)
Very nice drive, with a somewhat slow helical lead screw positioner.
The Tandon TM-100-4M was also 100tpi ("M" stood for "micropolis"?)

When Tony originally wrote that FAQ, we agreed that the 100tpi was obscure
enough that it didn't need to be mentioned in the FAQ (along with things
like the AMLYN drive)

There have certainly been some strange additional variations!
