Although BOINC-based volunteer desktop grids are quite popular there are new potential usage scenarios that could make BOINC systems even more popular both for volunteer computing and for establishing institutional desktop grids. In the paper we show three major new usage scenarios that will significantly increase the use of BOINC in the future. The extension of service grids with support of inexpensive BOINC resources will turn the attention of service grid users towards BOINC systems. The access of BOINC systems via workflow-oriented science gateways will enlarge the number of user communities that can use BOINC systems in their daily work. Finally, providing QoS requirements in BOINC systems by extending them with on-demand cloud resources will attract user communities whose applications have got some time constraints.
