What would it be like to run OS X Yosemite with Retina graphics on a classic Macintosh?

Not so long ago, we published an article showing the silent evolution of Apple products, one that we don't even realize.

Comparison of Mac screens

An example was how the resolution of Macs has changed since the launch of the first Macintosh at the iMac with Retina 5K screen: only 9 inches, 512342 pixels and 72ppp against 27 inches, 51202880 pixels and 217ppp. The image comparison (above) shows this stark difference well.

But what if someone did the opposite, that is, take the OS X Yosemite (which brings graphics prepared for this resolution of the iMac Retina 5K) and put it inside the classic Macintosh respecting the 1: 1 ratio? How would that be? Mike Solomon, from The Cleverest, decided to play a little and the result you see below:
