Correct me if I'm wrong, but only the engine went open source. The actual gameplay did not. So, while you can download the source code, you still need to purchase the .wad to play.
Read my whole post next time as I said as much in the following paragraph that you overlooked. In addition there is Freedoom which is a free replacement version of Doom 1 & 2.

In fact, Doom II, Final Doom and Ultimate Doom are $20 each from id.
or for much less in a Steam bundle or similar sale
The id bundle during every Steam sale always includes these games.

The point is they're still selling it. It isn't free, Freedoom is a fan made wad that uses all original content.

They sell it. $20 on their website. Now they're selling it again. They're not selling something free.
