Since Mathematica is a lot older than both Windows (any version) and  
Linux it would be pretty remarkable if version 1 worked under these.  
But who knows.
I once had version 1.2 for the Mac, but I used it on a 68K Mac II.  
Mathematica itself came on floppy disks and even if still had them  
(which I do not) it certainly would not run on any modern Mac. I  
think your best bet is to find a first generation Next machine that  
came with Mathematica pre-installed. They may not be so cheap though  
since I suppose they must now have some historic value...
