It's beautifully coded and done from programmers to programmers that must provide user friendly result to end-user without too much hassle. To WP Premium Themes: I have met so far only very few such customers who have had issue us charging them and then using free MODx CMF but it's not hard to explain them that that just makes the development way cheaper for them and results are same or better.

But all open source projects are not made equal either. Some are well coded, documented and supported; some are poorly written and will waste more time than doing the job yourself. Also some client don't understand why you charge them money to build their website when you told them you were using a free open source platform...

As you said, with Open Source software, the code is there to edit and extend. One thing to note is that the platforms you mention have very large followings making them great for community based support. With smaller less known open source solutions the support most likely won't be there. With a closed system you would expect a high level of support from the development team without needing to ask the sometimes misinformed public. Magento and WordPress are exremetly flexible to use.
