Omega was one of the first base themes to introduce responsive layouts in a configurable manner. This allowed (and still allows) any site builder/editor full control over their layouts through an intuitive interface. Omega 5.x introduces a highly enhanced layout builder, and SCSS generation on the fly for layouts so that all processing is handled in the administrative interface, and not on the frontend.
