No, if you only have shareware Doom, then you will not be able to make or play addons (i.e. pwads). The operating system is not relevant to this.

You need to buy the full games.

Well, technically you could. They would just have to be doom1 pwads, either only using textures available in the shareware or providing it's own in the pwad.. unless I'm missing something here.

Also it would lack pretty much all the more hellish monsters, except the baron of hell.

But yeah, if you want to buy doom, I highly recommend buying it on steam. It gives you the IWADS when you buy it, so you can take them and use a source port and play custom wads.

I love how they set that up.

Id has said (in a press release IIRC) that they didn't want add-ons made for the shareware version.
