    Can Vista Home Basics supports simple Workgroup networking for sharing of
    Printers and Internet resources?

  2. Yes. All versions of Vista work the same in workgroup networking.

    Thanks Steve.
    I posted this questions because the dealer claims that Vista Home Basics and
    Premium do not have any networking capabilities at ALL and asking me to go
    for a higher version of Vista.....what a misleading remarks they have made...

  4. You're welcome, Alvin. The Home versions can't join a domain, which
    is a type of network used mostly by large businesses, universities,
    etc. Perhaps that's what the dealer was thinking of.

    FYI, here's a chart that shows the capabilities of the Vista versions:
