Well, of course one could suggest that people are just "cheap", but this isn't always the case. First of all, people like to give money, in exchange of something. Charity is therefore a category of its own. Donating without something in return is something honorable to do, precisely because it isn't something people do by default. I believe one shouldn't hate people who don't donate - only admire people who do donate. A very big part of the open source appeal is this idea of giving to the community without asking for anything in return (besides respecting the license etc.).
