Depending on what particular Adobe software you're speaking of, would determine 
that answer. Best to check http://appdb.winehq.org.

The difference in Wine behavior you'd see would be in a non-supported window 
manager rather than the specific distro itself I suspect.

Gnome is well supported and KDE is mostly. Things beyond that are iffy at best.
