Will my items get deleted?
If I switch to Linux will my tf2 items get deleted or will they forever stay on my account?

No, items (like games) are attached to your account, not computer

If you have any questions about Linux feel free to ask them. I'd recommend you to install Ubuntu 12.04 32 Bit which is the Long Term Support Version.

One thing that might confuse people is that you don't have to browse the web to download software and drivers. You can install them from within Ubuntu. If you tell us what GPU you have we can help you out with that.

Ah, thanks, I just didn't want to lose my 9 refined.

Fun fact #2: if you have steam cloud enabled, your config will carry over aswell.

its bad to recommend 32 bit

if he had more than 3,8gb he need 64bits.

Just use x84_64, hopefully valve will have some sense to release steam and their games compiled/linked for the 64bit platform.

that's not actually true, you can use a PAE kernel (Ubuntu will Automatically do this if you install 32bit on a system with more than 4 gigs of ram).

Haven't you seen all the trouble people had with installing Steam (32 Bit) through the Software Center on 64 Bit. He just saves himself a ton of trouble this way when he goes 32 bit and it will leave a better impression, when he doesn't have to add architecture via the terminal just to fix where Canonical messed up.

Also PAE.

True, althought it seems like a short-term solution.

TBH for a new user it would still be better to recommend 64 bit. Seance all they would really need to do is update Ubuntu. Install synaptic package manager from the Ubuntu store and then install steam though that as it will auto pick all dependencies and install them along with it. The second reason i suggest this is after Ubuntu updates especially with Nvidia GPU installed the jocky error goes away and allows you to install 310 beta drivers for it. Not saying CLI isn't bad for manual installs just saying they can do it easier in 3-4 clicks and learn CLI at there own pace.

To answer your original question NO your items don't delete as they are account bound not platform bound.
