Yep. Condor at the University of Wisconsin is upstream for MRG Grid. 
Condor is in use in a huge amount of places, and has quite a solid 
reputation. MRG Grid is one part of a larger suite that also contains 
Messaging and Realtime (thus the acronym, pronounced "merge"). So, use 
Condor if you only want grid computing. Use MRG if you want to integrate 
the other stuff as well.

Sorry if it sounds like I'm 'selling', it wasn't my intention.
