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.)
