Outlook 2010 Flags

Ugh.  This past week I've been converting from Office 2003 to 2010 and so far I've not found one feature improvement in 2010, but I routinely find 2010 is missing useful features found in 2003.  What were they thinking?!

Here's my newest frustration:  In 2003 I labeled flags with custom names and colors.  I don't see a method for naming and the only colors appear to be various shades of red.

My research finds they've replace flags with the category colors.  This is a terrible method for flagging actions since categories and flags are entirely different.

Three questions:
Is there a way to use flags like in 2003?
If not, does anyone offer an addin program for this?
Is there a forum for expressing our views with Microsoft and if so, do they listen?

Prior to posting my question I found the sites you've provided above.  Unfortunately, based on the information provided it appears Outlook 2010 flags no longer have the functionality avaiable in 2003.  This is a step backwards, and I hope future versions will provide at minimum the flag feature of 2003.  In the meantime, I'll look for third addin software or completely change the way I manage my email priorities.  

I'm very irritated with Microsoft right now.  I don't see any advantages of Office 2010 over 2003, but instead am finding 2010 has fewer and/or less useful features.  Does Microsoft provide a feedback forum for people to make suggestions?
