The statement "No software is without bugs." is located under section "1.4 Common Bugs"
This statement is incorrect. It could be replaced with "Most complex software contains bugs" or "No known operating system is without bugs".
Yes, it is possible to write bug free software. Software in interpreted languages like R do turn out to be bug free. Safety critical s/w can have a few LOC and still appear bug free.
"Software bugs are common but not necessarily unavoidable" should be appropriate.

hasty generalization: "Making assumptions about a whole group or range of cases based on a sample that is inadequate" (from http://www.unc.edu/depts/wcweb/handouts/fallacies.html).
The statement is not a logical fallacy, if we see it from a 'ontology-free logic' point of view. It may or may not be a case of 'hasty generalisation' (it may be due to conditioning), but is definitely a form of improper generalisation.
Whatever, the line should be rectified.
