    From a software engineering standpoint I would say:
    error -- some relatively un-expected condition in a program from which you may be able to recover.
    defect -- something that didn't work the way sales and marketing thought it should.
    fault -- a hardware error, SEGFAULT, BUSERR, etc.
    failure -- crash and burn.
