difference in RC 7100 and RTM 7600?

I've searched and searched and searched. Can anybody tell me the differences or updates between RC 7100 and RTM 7600? If it seems worth it to me i wanna try the leaked one :)

Windows 7 RC build 7100

Not too much, no watermark, more stability performance and general "finality"

I think I may have found a new Media Player background available through a reg hack, but I am not sure...

Also, "RDing" from a Vista computer is compatible with 7's Aero Glass.. I do not think the same is true for XP, but then again I tried it from a really old laptop with 64 mb of ram or something like that

Libraries are fixed as far as I can tell, and the Action Center detects MS security essentials and no longer gives you annoying warnings about finding a security program when you already have one.

Maybe these things were in other builds but these are just changes I have noticed.

I'm also trying to find a more complete list of changes and such. Overall it seems snappier than previous builds.

I have been warned not to try and activate it though, try to rearm if possible until Oct 22, when you get it from wherever you preordered it.

EDIT: You never know about malware in a leaked build though, so if you have Technet I would wait until August 7th, or else Oct 22. I'm probably going to reinstall it when I get it then just to make sure everything is MS certified.

Windows 7 Professional, Windows XP

Mainly I think Driver Additions and Bug fixing.
Regarding the Malware thing as jc4gavejc said: a Tehcnet blogger has stated the Hashes and they match the Zuko leak, and as playing with malware will surely make the Hash Go wrong. So I guess at the moment theres nothing to worry. MSDN will post the real hashes on 6th Aug. So that can confirm the Reliability of the leak.

Acronis worked w/7100 but won't w/7600???
Acronis 10 home worked very well with my RC 7100 x 64. I know this because I've restored images from it in 7100. Now that I've installed 7600 x 64 and run Acronis from windows it says it's incompatible and won't start. Am I going crazy or what? I've tried running in compatability mode but no joy.
