If it is true Wolfram uses Mathematica on a Windows based machine my experience is it doesn't translate to Mathematica running better on Windows. I use Mathematica on WindowsNT and on a Mac (currently Mac OS X). I have found Mathematica to be more stable on a Mac than on Windows. On more than one occassion I've seen errors I made Mathematica code to crash the entire machine under WindowsNT. I've never had this happen running things on a Mac.
