One final note. I fully tested the Plantronics Headset on Fedora 14 both
with analog plugs and with the USB adapter, and they work fine. I would
prefer using the USB so I can easily use my speakers or the headset. The
bottom line is that the SB Arena just did not play well with Linux, so
in a way I'm glad I broke the microphone :-)
