So any idea about the tux?
Did the steam trick work did everyone give up on the tux and delete them? Please Please Please lol so still no tux huh. Just wondering if anyone has a clue when it might be tradable maybe next big tf2 update?

Too many PC Steam Users bragged about downloading a Linux Install just so they could get the Tux. So I imagine that it will never happen.

That is true. But more then likely steam will just wait it out till people give up on the tux or figure out how to find out what are genuine tux's and what are alt tux's. I'm sure it will be at least gift-able like all the other free items we got in achievements.

Erm, but surely that was entirely the point of the promotion - PC owners downloading and installing Linux and Steam and TF2 and then running them.

These Tux, obtained in this manner, are, of course, entirely genuine.

(it's worth mentioning that the game didn't really work on linux in any case and still doesn't on many systems. Systems where it works perfectly on the same hardware under windows. So there's no real sense of installing linux and steam and TF2 to actually play the game. They've some more work to get to that stage)

If people got them by other nefarious means, then perhaps some are not.

As for value, it was unlikely to be as valuable as Buds. Firstly because it is easier for PC users to run linux than Mac OS and secondly because the community is now far more aware that items have value than they were at the time buds appeared.

Although, perhaps signficant numbers still didn't bother?

Ya I knew these wouldn't be valuable like buds. But I was hoping atleast 1 to 2keys if they ever became tradable. If not then some people will have a penguin farm lol.
