There weren't many technical details, but the authors indicated that the recently released OS/2 version of Mathematica ran about 30% faster than the Windows (win32s) version on the same hardware. They also indicated that it was able to handle some difficult cases that would cause the Windows version to crash. There was no comparison made with the NT version.
