i'd need at least more ram, and likely more cpu for that, possibly also
diskspace, which is just a variation of needing more hardware. 

to really try an operating system it needs to run constantly while
working so that you can test the feasability of doing certain tasks in
it, while sticking to the old one where the new one does not work yet.

this is the same kind of transition problem many people have with
switching from windows to linux.
