Sony gives you the option to remove crapware from certain new Windows 7 PCs. They call it their “Fresh Start” option, as shown here:
- A crapware-free PC should be the DEFAULT selection, not an easily missed opt-out selection
- Fresh Start is only available for Win 7 Professional
This leaves me with a very uneasy feeling about Sony. If I were to buy a laptop from them, it would be Win 7 Home Premium. But since Fresh Start is not available with Home Premium, what kind of crap is pre-loaded?
