I wonder if this version will start out as 19.99
I'm sure there will be a hardware hurdle involved

I seriously doubt 9 will be the panacea everyone expects. I suspect it will be heavy into promoting Bing and Microsoft's cloud services and try to rope consumers into a monthly subscription plan. It seems as though productivity is a mute cause with the company's profit only concept.

If I have 7 and 8 why would I even need 9?

Correct, there will be a free version for small devices and tablets. Desktop users *Will* be able to turn off everything they do not want or need. If not the EU etc. will force this as uncompetitive.
For example Bing as your search and being unable to select Google (ASK ) search.
There will always be someone somewhere who will (hack) find a way around things being forced upon us. If Windows 9 does not fit our needs we will stick with 7, it is as simple as that.
