Everything seems to work correctly. Testing: Install, Startup, History, Filters, Color space conversion, Select/Text/Blur/Pen/Eye Drop/Dodge/Burn Tools, Save for Web, Adjustment Layers, Guides, Snap To, Keyboard shortcuts, Batch, and Image Size.
What does not
Adjustment Layer Setting windows (such as Curves) do not always stay on top of all other windows. All other functionality is disabled (correctly), but the window management is slightly off.
Other bugs listed on the app page.
What was not tested
Anything not listed, but it seems like it would work.

Tips for UI Quirks:
Thanks to earther for the following email:
I was having problems with the Photoshop 7 ALT-Click keybinding in a new Debian install running Compiz. I did the standard window manager tweak but it still didn't work properly. Then I discovered an ALT-Click keybinding in the Compiz Window Management > Move Window > Initiate Window Move settings. I changed it to 'super' like in Gnome window management and voila, it seemed to get it working again in Photoshop. You might want to add that bit of info to the clone tool info on the Photoshop 7 page. earther
Admin note: the following information was extracted from a user comment posted on July 13th 2008, and may not be relevant to current Wine.
Symptoms: After loading plugins, tools, brushes, etc., the program
halts with the error message "Unable to continue because of a hardware
or system error. Sorry, but this error is unrecoverable." Clicking OK
results in hard crash.
Diagnosis: This problem is related to a settings file that is created and modified each time Photoshop runs and exits.
Quick Fix: You can force Photoshop CS2 to start by holding down CTRL+ALT+SHIFT while starting the application Linux or Command+Option+Shift in Mac OSX. You will be presented with a dialog box that asks if you wish to delete the settings file. Selecting Yes will delete the file, and allow the application to start as normal.
PERMANENT FIX: The permanent fix is actually very simple. The problematic file is the General Settings file, "Adobe Photoshop CS2 Prefs.psp", which references the default fonts Adobe expects to be installed. If for any reason these fonts, or any other files, are not installed or not functioning as expected, the application will terminate to the desktop. This settings file is located here:
/home/[USER PROFILE]/.wine/drive_c/windows/profiles/[USER PROFILE]/Application Data/Adobe/Photoshop/9.0/Adobe Photoshop CS2 Settings/Adobe Photoshop CS2 Prefs.psp
Naturally, replace [USER PROFILE] with the user name you are working under.
Now, if you've encountered this error, you've already run CS2 twice, and the settings file has already been created and corrupted. Although deleting it will allow you to start CS2, it will again store a corrupted file when you exit the application, and next time you start the application, you'll repeat the same fatal error as usual.
So, having located this file, perform the following steps:
(1) Rename or delete the corrupted file
(2) Start CS2. It should start just fine.
(3) IMMEDIATELY after it has started, change the permissions on the newly re-created settings file (Adobe Photoshop CS2 Prefs.psp) to READ ONLY. You can do this in your file browser, or, if you are at the command line, use the following command:
chmod -w ./Adobe\ Photoshop\ CS2\ Prefs.psp
(4) Rejoice. Your work here is done.
Now, whenever CS2 exits, it will no longer overwrite the fresh, working settings file, and you will always be able to start it without the annoying error and subsequent crash.
