Confused on plugins for multisite!

It looks like I need to Network Activate all plugins so that they show up for availibility to all users. But the problem with that is that all sites come preinstalled with alot of plugins that the new user may or may not want to use. Is there anyway to make them available for download but not already installed on a fresh site? I am going to assume that I have to turn back to the pro-site plugin again but not having much luck with that and membership 2
