Not to say that you can't make a mix in either one. Also not to say that you'll be able to tell what was mixed in what. But there is a difference in sound engines and all daws work differently.
OK - 'work differently' - YES, absolutely. But what I can tell you from reading the numerous posts on this topic is that if you feed DAWs the same sine or square wave, the output is nearly identical.
I think what happens is that because the feature sets differ somewhat between DAWs, that this complicates the issue and leads to a perception of a different sound from one DAW to another. Anecdotally, what I can say is that I have used Cubase, Nuendo, PT, Logic, Abelton Live, and I didn't hear one DAW imparting a particular 'sound' to my mixes over another. Just my personal experience...
