Pressing Windows 7 Questions

This week, I officially switched over to Windows 7 and Office 2007 -- all in one fell swoop! I know a lot of you are on Windows 7, so here are a few questions:

Why doesn't Firefox support Flash on Windows 7 yet? Why does my 'Net connection and VPN die every time the machine goes to sleep? Why does Windows 7 still crash once or twice a day? Why can't I install a printer driver for an HP LaserJet 1000?

Tech advice welcome at [email protected] Once I solve my Win 7 glitches, I'll have plenty of Office 2007 and IE 8 questions!
