A: was typically a boot drive while B: was used for loading programs/storing files. When hard drives became cheap enough and were added to consumer PCs they had the designation as the C: drive since people already had an A: and a B: drive. When floppies were phased out, the C: drive remained because people were already familiar with it being the primary hard drive and it was just more convenient to leave it as such.
