Do you use your sandbox computer for anything other than the sandbox? If not, I’d recommend not upgrading the OS. Treat it like an appliance.

That said, an upgrade between major OS versions might require a re-installation of the Vrui, Kinect, and SARndbox packages as some system libraries might change to incompatible versions. I recommend rebuilding all three packages after the upgrade to be safe. Back up your main Vrui.cfg (if changed), your Kinect’s calibration data, your SARndbox’s BoxLayout.txt and ProjectorMatrix.dat, and any custom shaders or scripts you installed.
