    The Google Pixelbook is a somewhat niche product because it runs ChromeOS. The operating system isn’t for everyone as it’s fairly limited compared to Windows or MacOS.

    However, the limited use of the laptop may change in the future. It seems that Google is working on hardware certification for the laptop, possibly allowing it to natively run Windows 10 as a second operating system.

    ChromeOS now has commits referencing WHCK (Windows Hardware Certification Kit) and HLK (Hardware Lab Kit), which are likely pushes for Microsoft’s certification of the device to run Windows 10. Though the OS can run on uncertified hardware, certification brings signed drivers and a certain level of stability.
