Let programmers program. Okay?

It's funny. I don't get to go tell the designers how to draw pictures. I don't get to tell the managers which columns to use in their spreadsheets or which office to use for meetings. And I don't get to tell the analysts how to order coffee or where to buy discount shoes.

So why do all of these people get to dictate which database I use? Why does someone who doesn't even know what an application server is get to tell me which one I have to use? Why do I have to spend 90% of my time reinventing the wheel to fit with your new, insane configurations, instead of being allowed to define the configuration at the beginning when I can tell you all the time and money you'll save by reusing the work that's already been done?
