Microsoft is paving the way for Redstone 2, and has rolled out the first build for this OS edition. Build 14901 doesn’t bring many improvements or new features, focusing mainly on testing the new notifications in File Explorer.

The next Redstone 2 builds won’t pack many new features either, as Microsoft is now directing its energy towards improving OneCore, which is the shared “heart” of Windows across PC, tablet, phone, IoT, Hololens and Xbox, as Dona Sarkar explains. In other words, the Windows Insider Team is optimizing OneCore through some code refactoring and other engineering work for teams to start checking in new features and improvements.

Sarkar added that Insiders would be able to test out the new features in a few months’ time, but didn’t say when exactly that would happen.

Redstone 2 build 14901 also brings two issues to the table, and the problem which will probably affect most users are the constant Adobe Acrobat Reader crashes. If you’ve already downloaded build 14901, expect Adobe Reader to crash each and every time you launch it.

If you still want to run Microsoft’s latest build and be able to view PDF files, then you should install another PDF viewer. If you’re an Adobe fan, you should probably abstain from installing Restone 2 builds, and wait until Microsoft fixes this Adobe incompatibility issue.

Speaking of issues, Insiders are also reporting they can’t install build 14901 due to the 0x8024402f error code. Fortunately, it appears this issue is pretty rare, and can be easily fixed by trying again to download and install the update.
