I wonder if there is a way to scrap Chrome OS for a linux Distro...
Yes. In fact, that's what Linus Torvalds himself uses. See http://www.zdnet.com/chromebooks-biggest-fan-linus-torvalds-7000012842/
Thanks, this really opens up my interest towards this product. The idea I can use an expandable SD is a major perk. Not really a fan of the idea you are forced to use verizons LTE. Fast sure, but expensive for what you get.

@Shadizzle: Crouton seems to be the best way to run Linux on a Chromebook: https://github.com/dnschneid/crouton#readme
Re LTE, 2 years of LTE service @ 100 MB/month are bundled with the Pixel's purchase price. I use cellular data as a backup when Wi-Fi is unavailable, and in 2.5 years of using Chromebooks, I have blown through the 100 mb monthly quota exactly once; a 24-hour day pass (unlimited data) cost $9.95. 1 terabyte of Google Drive storage for 3 years is also included with a new Pixel. For the first 2-3 years, there are really no other ownership costs beyond initial purchase price.
