Chromebook drastically reduced the keyboard complexity.

Chromebook, runs the ChromeOS operating system. It is designed for average user of computers, not for professionals. Many of the keyboard design choices make sense. It throws away the decades of keyboard baggage piled up since 1970s, while not being a radical change. I would say it is a good change.
