The Windows version of Mathematica runs under OS/2 in the WINOS2 session (which is essentially Windows code compiled using the Watcom C compiler vs. the Microsoft C compiler). However, it is my experience that the 32-bit version of Mathematica for OS/2 generally runs 10-20% faster than the Windows version of Mathematica (under either plan Windows or under OS/2.) Scot A.C.
