That (the fact that virtually no software is offered with a warranty) is pretty much my point. It's not offered because no one will buy it. People won't buy it because they believe they can protect themselves from the risk of a bug (or just bear the risk) for less money than it would cost the seller to guarantee there aren't any bugs.
I believe the free market does a better job in this way of sorting out the complexities of the risks of operating computers than legislators can.
