Sony giving Fresh Start to Vaio UX Micro PC

Update: Sony Fresh Start back to being just for Vaio TZ

The bloatware-free Fresh Start option that Sony recently made available to Vaio TZ notebooks running Vista Business will soon tire of its exclusivity with the series and opt for an open relationship.


Sony Electronic’s Senior Public Relations Strategist, Jon Piazza, responded to my email about a "clean" UX Micro PC this afternoon with the following statement: "Fresh Start will be rolled out to the entire product line by the end of this summer."

It’s been nearly two years since I unboxed my UX180P, so I don’t remember the horrors of the out-of-box experience. If it was anything like my TZ170N, whose crapware included full-length copies of Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2, then I understand why I blocked it out.
