This one I would have answered in one sentence.  "The hard drive was C: because A: and B: were used by floppy drives."

But now that I've posted the wrong answer on the internet...   :)

I remember Gary Kildall talking about it(the IBM deal) on Computer Chronicles or some documentary shown on CC.  He basically said the agreement IBM wanted was one where they could slit his throat at their whim by enforcing the drastic sections.  That always made me believe the wording was such that only Bill Gates would accept the terms.

But anyway..  it might be fun to watch some of those CC episodes again.

There's a literalist in every crowd.  When another drinker challenged the guy to go toe to toe he put his foot in his mouth I'd say.  :)
