Who are bug's fault?

The answer to this question isn't trivial.

A bug may be because a flaw in the main application's design. But the bug can also be in some of the libraries the main application uses, or even in any of the underlying layers, such as the Operating System, the emulator on which you are running the application or whatever you can think of.
