What happened to named categories?

I've just upgraded from Windows Vista and Office 2003 to Windows 7 and Office 2010.

I've previously used named categories in Outlook to keep my e-mail, contacts, etc. organized. Named categories seem to have been replaced by color categories. If that's so it is, in my view, a retrograde step.

Is there any way in Outlook 2010 to continues to use named categories and continue to use the categories I've specified in Outlook 2003 and preceding versions of Outlook?
