What if we advised you that the Google Pixelbook, which lately runs Chrome OS, might additionally run Windows 10 down the street? That might sound like ESPN’s subsequent 30 for 30 documentary, but it surely additionally seems like one thing that might develop into fact, reported XDA Developers.
Based on commits present in the Chromium codebases, it looks as if Google is trying out the Pixelbook towards the Windows Hardware Certification Kit (WHCK) and Hardware Lab Kit (HLK).

While the WHCK is self-explanatory, Microsoft makes use of the HLK as a part of its Hardware Compatibility Program that certifies can send with Windows. These are steps that producers normally take, so it will no longer make sense for Google to move via all of that bother and simply have this be a small facet challenge.
