You've probably heard of Don Quixote. He was the guy Cervantes had running around Spain attacking windmills, thinking they were ruthless giants.
From his name we've gotten an adjective, called "quixotic."
According to Wikipedia "quixotic" means "idealistic and impractical," and not only am I all too often accused of that, it's also (and also all too often), exactly how I feel.
It must be how I feel. I'd be crazy not to feel that way.
It's been more than twelve years, and apparently I haven't realized that getting a "Best-of-Breed" configurator into the backbone of SAP, for which purpose the Configuration Workgroup was originally founded, way back in 1993, just isn't going to happen.
Or isn't it?
There's a fair amount of evidence that suggests that it's already there.
It's just that hardly anybody knows about it yet, and the people who should know about it apparently aren't talking.
It's as if it's a dark, dirty secret ... a secret with a very strange, unmentionable name ...
