Isn't there a better way to uninstall Eclipse than to delete the eclipse folder?

Hello Jim,

Eclipse doesn't come as an installer. It is a zipped archive. You just run the eclipse environment without installing it. So you see since you don't install it it's ok to get rid of eclipse by just deleting the eclipse folder.
