They're for different audio products. For the most commonly used ones, in general (but not always), the pink jack is the input jack for a microphone and the green jack is the main line-out jack for extraneous audio devices / control devices such as amps, speakers, or headphones.

The other colors are for more specific / specialized devices, and the jacks included depend on the motherboard the computer has. Two more jacks include the black jack for a rear speaker and the orange jack for a subwoofer.
