Talking about Tux/Buds price relation
So, everyone is talking about how much will tux be valued. I was thinkin that it would be worth a key or so, coz its very simple to get linux, comparated to Mac. BUT, if you look in Meet The Stats, there are currently 58,8k buds, when tux is almost at 27k. In the other way, buds were duped and TF2 was only for premiums (no F2P). Also, everyone ran to play on Linux beacause they knew that happened the same with buds. So, what do you think? Will Tux beat Buds?

Well everyone knows and loves earbuds

The tux is a neat penguin which sits behind your butt.

It could go either way .

My speculation is the market will be flooded with tux's from extra accounts.

Well I did a little research there are more buds then there are tux's so the tux is rarer then buds. So it may be a high price item who knows.

Quantity =/= Quality.

Buds look a whole lot better, and even come with a particle effect. The Tux is placed -behind- you, and has the ugly straps of the Canteen.

But the fact it was really wonky getting TF2 working on a Linux, I'm sure it'll be worth atleast a few keys. Not anywhere near Buds, but.

You guys do realize there is more to linux on steam than just installing the OS right? It's not windows and you people need to stop assuming the average user is as computer literate as most of us are.

You may disagree with my statement but the numbers don't lie. makes me wonder whatever happened to all the kids bragging about farming penguins.

That was pretty much some poor attempt at making people believe there'd be too many Tuxes in the works for them to be worth anything.

And the problem is people will just straight up believe what they read in forums. I'm not going to sell my tuxx but after all the people who just want to cash out sell their tuxx, I believe the price will reflect their actual rarity. However I could be wrong and people could just not care about it, I have a hard time understanding the tf2 market to be honest.

All I know is that I have a rare misc item ;)

It was very easy to get (once you got ubuntu to work ) so I dont think thay will be all that rare
look at the haunted items or robot chicken hat for example

Rarity is not in account. I'm guessing most of the earbuds are in old accounts that aren't even being used anymore. Also, sexy white and particle effect

I think that tux will be 5 keys MAX(in a year or so). a ref when it becomes tradeable but in a few months it will increase price.
Niice Mar 2, 2013 @ 7:47pm 
I think the start price will be around 3 keys,a nd then ppl will find that its a bit rare and incrase its price
Pielord Mar 2, 2013 @ 7:56pm 
Even if they remain rare it does not guarentee value. Look at the ebenezer, it is about as rare as a max's and only worth a few keys.

rare means nothing.

the whole linux ethos is against status badges and paying pretty much anything for anything

plus its ugly

so everyone who wants one right now probably has a dozen, it took a few hours to download and load it all up sure, but after that 5 minutes a pop for an account login....there are tons out there. whats the mantra of the linux user anyways... "thats overpriced...eff that" is probably pretty close to it

Only ;_; Only a few keys
only.

(in comparison, though it is "only")

Okay, first of all there is more Buds (59,293) than Tuxes (31,673), but the Tux doesn't have an effect like Buds do. The Tux could be worth nothing or it could be very expensive, who knows really. It's too early to set the price for it 'cause it's still not tradeable yet.

I have to say the Tux doesn't look very nice compared to Buds and some people say it looks cute and nice.

People are setting the price too early and saying It'll be worth 2 buds 'cause it's rarer than buds and some people are saying that it'll be like couple of keys because "Ubuntu can be installed to VMware and then donwloading Steam and TF2 on it, and then just running TF2 on the machine... Profit" or "Linux is free and Mac isn't". The truth is you can NOT set the price untill it'll be tradeable.

In the end the safest and most stable thing to invest in is Keys. Everything else goes up and down in relation to them.
