The Google Pixelbook may get Windows 10 certification soon

Google Pixelbook

While Pixelbook is Google's flagship for Chrome OS, its ability to dual boot into Windows 10 will only attract more buyers. Although Chrome OS is no longer entirely dependent on Web applications-it can also be used to run Android applications, and Linux application support is also in development-the lack of Windows support means that most traditional desktop applications are unusable.

Mentions of WHCK (Windows Hardware Certification Kit) and HLK (Windows Hardware Lab Kit) confirm that this won't be a hack job and that Google is working on getting the Google Pixelbook to pass the certification suite provided by Microsoft.

Google launched its premium Pixelbook laptop in October previous year with retail sales starting a month later.

Before we get too carried away here, remember that whatever is happening behind the scenes could be derailed before Windows 10 support actually makes it to production hardware. The idea was to be able to run two operating systems on the machine. The recent code commits strongly hint that Windows 10 is that AltOS.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders denies CBS News report she’s leaving the White House
Some of the vacant positions remain unfilled, and in fact, the Trump White House never fully staffed all the typical jobs. Communications director Anthony Scaramucci was sacked last summer after a brief stint at the White House.

If you'll recall, AltOS recently came onto the scene as a viable method of being able to install Windows on a Pixelbook.

Why it matters: The biggest complain levied at Chromebooks is how they can't run "real" apps, like a full version of Photoshop. There's also a question of, if it comes with Windows 10 preinstalled, if it would be Windows 10 Home, Pro or even in S Mode, which mirrors Chrome OS's lightweight sensibilities.

As a Windows user myself, the possibility of this excites me.

Google Pixelbook, the company's laptop-tablet hybrid, has been a popular device primarily because of its design and functionality, but it is arguably limited thanks to running Chrome OS. And since certifications are required and Microsoft and Google would ostensibly need to collaborate on the feature to ensure everything is in place, the whole concept could collapse before it becomes a reality.
