Bag-of-Tasks (BoT) applications (those parallel applications whose tasks are independent) are both relevant and amendable for execution on computational grids. In spite of such suitability, few users currently execute their BoT applications on grids. This state of affairs inspires preoccupation. After all, if grids cannot deal with BoT applications, they are not going to be of much use.
