    I've downloaded a few apps that apps are free. However while running, a small advertizement window with size of 1cm x width of screen appears on screen (typically at bottom).
    Market says this app is free, but then who decided to put that ad there?

    The app is free but the developer of the app has to generate revenue somehow. Many apps have a paid version without adds but for the most part they are add-supported.

    Free doesn't mean "free of ads". It means that you don't pay for the app. Developers have to eat as well and it's not uncommon for free apps to have ads to generate revenue. Take a look around the Market. It's not unusual for apps to have free (ad supported) versions and paid (no ads) versions.

    Root + adfree = no ads on most Apps.
