No, it won't be entirely the same, as you'll have packages from
updates-testing (updates-testing was enabled out of the box on F13
installs prior to RC1). Some of these haven't passed testing and made it
into dist-f13, so you've got packages actually 'newer' than what's in
the official F13 builds. Most of those will make it in as F13 updates
sooner or later, but for now, they're not part of the F13 package set.
To help with the desktop testing, please do a fresh install or use the
live image (RC2). Thanks!
