I switch from speakers to headset on the fly (and vice-versa) - just as 
you triumphantly claimed to be able to do with with that <yuk> 
pulseaudio thingie.

AND I don't have to first install Ubuntu and THEN Kubuntu to get MY 
audio working. All I do is install Ubuntu and get rid of pulseaudio and 
install alsamixergui (although I believe I don't really have to do this 
- running alsamixer is sufficient).
