Should Software Developers offer warranties for their code?

Survey period: 6 Oct 2013 to 14 Oct 2013

Let's restrict it to just the code and not any loss or damage caused by bad code. If our code breaks should we be legally liable to provide a repair, a replacement or a refund?

If I code something in .Net and there's a bug in the library am I liable for that? Or what if my code is a third party piece of software being used incorrectly in the program that has the problem?

What if the user has downloaded and patched their OS which causes problems is that my fault or the patchers' or the people who made the OS?

If a bolt fails in a bridge who's at fault, the bridge builders or the bolt makers?
