Instead, it appears as though Google is looking to get its notebook to the point where it could be certified under Microsoft's Hardware Compatibility Program. It doesn't make sense for Google to seek the certification unless they are planning on using Windows with it, which suggests that they might be working on a Pixelbook that could dual boot both operating systems. Earlier this year, changes made to the Pixelbook's firmware indicated that Google is working on a mode called AltOS that would allow switching between Chrome OS and an "alternative OS", in some kind of dual-boot configuration.
Based on commits found in the Chromium codebases, it looks like Google is testing the Pixelbook against the Windows Hardware Certification Kit (WHCK) and Hardware Lab Kit (HLK). For buyers, it would mean the guarantee of drivers so that the Pixelbook's USB ports, touchscreen, webcam, and other hardware components would all play nicely with Windows software. The HLK is specifically mentioned along with "Eve", which is Google Pixelbook's development codename.
The developers have since become a little less clandestine as work on AltOS progresses, letting slip a few details that help us build a better picture.
