The only people I've met who are hostile towards free as in freedom software are capitalists in the software industry. They objections are usually something like, "How will my business survive if someone makes a libre version of my app?" If their business relies on people paying them for something that could be done for free, then their business doesn't deserve to exist.

There are some other people who hate it because they think it's low quality or virus infected, but usually those people are referring to free as in beer software.
