Sony will give even more of its customers the option to just say no to trial software.

Currently available during the configuration process of the Vaio TZ2200, the Fresh Start option will be available on more of the company's TZ series of notebooks, Sony spokesman Jon Piazza told CNET News.com Wednesday.

Fresh Start will not, however, be available on all Vaios, which is what Gizmodo and others are reporting.

Though, you know, that's not a bad idea.

Update: Piazza clarified and said that the option is now available on Vaio TZ2000 and TZ2500.
