VRS started in responce to problem of relianace on
central commercial servers for much of the
"WebServices" ideas afloat.  It starts with the
premise that most, if not all, of these services can
be provided from our own machines.  And when they
can't due to limited resources (i.e. bandwitdh and
presence, we can join with others, on our terms, to
provide those additional resources.

Globus is far more generalized than the VRS.

Grids are an interesting idea, and have a really
useful function.  But there are things it's not suited
for, as in any technical solution.

Use for what?  Different project have different goals.
 VRS is the only one related to dotGNU that I know of.
