From my point of view, multiprogramming OS allows to run multiple programs simultaneously. On the other hand, multiprocessing OS handles more than one process at a time. Here program is the application that is submitted to the OS, and the OS further breaks down it small manageable units called processes. Modern operating systems support both features.
