There was a recent article in Byte Magazine (May 1995) regarding
Mathematica.  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.
