    Hi Guys, Good Day to all of you! I really need an answer to the following question:

    Could 20-25 computers, all with Windows 8 Single Language, share files, printers and an internet connection?

    Thanks!

    It really depends on the type of network you have. You can share the internet connection via a router, and share the printer out via one machine whilst mapping the other computers to the shared printer.

    .... and what i guess the types of router also depends upon the number of systems to be connected all together and the same is true for the speed and efficiency demanded out of the utilizing network through a router

    No to 25 yes to 20.
    According to Microsoft's License Terms.....
    I believe you can have as many as 20 concurrent connections for the purpose of file and printer sharing but I would not expect it to be particularly robust compared to the same situation when linking to a "Server" You may experience some problematic behavior like disconnected mapped network drives and or disappearing network shares, but I would certainly be interested in your results if you attempt to use one particular Windows 8 desktop as a "Server" in a 25 machine workgroup.
