Depends, does the instant bug fixing comes with the guarantee of not introducing new bugs?)

Instant bug fixing all the way.
The goal is not just about making working code without bugs, it's about understanding the technology and the purpose of out application all-together. Stumbling upon bugs is necessary, to learn, to evolve.

Bug fixing gives me power over everyone else’s code. I think that’s where I can really help.

It depends on what is my position/designation/occupation. If I am working as a developer then I would like to have power to write bug-free code, and if I am at a higher or managerial post then I would prefer instant-bug-fixing power.

Bug free code because I'm scared my code will do something to these very dangerous really hot machines it's connected to.

Trick question. Neither are all that achievable today, so I’d prefer being in a place where I have the time and support needed to find and fix bugs properly.

I think bug-free code, but I've come to realize I also love debugging as I love challenges and open source!
