There are many reasons why CVS is designed to work with local workspaces.

But the only thing I want is: One workspace for a group of developers. (So they see the latest version without continues commits and updates.)
The user who is committing is logged within the version (or history)

So, no local copies, just versions of files and see who has done the commit.
Is there a way to do this with CVS?!?

If what you want is a checked-out version of the head of some branch, that stays up-do-date every time someone does a commit, this will do what you want:

If what you want is a static copy of some version available to users, simply tag the version and then check out the code from that tag wherever you want it.

If what you want is a single sandbox where everybody works, however, you are going to have significant problems with that. CVS is intended to fix those problems (and does it relatively well.) There's no good reason to work that way, so don't do it.
