Omega 4 has been great to us when building Drupal 7 websites and applications.  It provides us with a clean starting point to build upon with a powerful and easy to use Grid system (Susy) as well as an efficient layout for using Sass.  Most of our themes were built using the Ruby-based Compass compiler.  While we love Sass, we have known Compass to be slow, buggy, and crash frequently.  There is nothing more annoying than refreshing and not seeing your changes only to find that Compass has crashed again.
