OK, so it first asked me where I want to store my preferences and other stuff. Still, it created folders under my OS user folder. Why? I don't need you for long stop ruining my system!
Just clicked on create new maven project and it can't do it. Can't read some plugin. Searched web and looks like there are many reason for it. Someone said settings.xml is missing, other guy said it is not needed. Someone said delete everything and start over, other guy said update eclipse plugins.
I admit this is the first time I will be using maven but I don't understand why I can't even create a project of certain type after downloading IDE.
While I was typing this message, eclipse plugin update process failed. It is not even responding anymore.
Edit: now that error dialog just went away! I wanted to click on details, did not work. Clicked on close, it worked.

I'm going to take a wild guess and say perhaps because that's where the OS says it should be storing per user data. I know, crazy talk, isn't it.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
