I recently started using Mac, and I'm just getting accustomed to the way the folders are set up and how downloads work. I just downloaded a tar.gz for Eclipse, and I clicked the icon in the downloads to "unzip" it (not sure if unzip is the right term there). Now, where should I move the new Eclipse folder?? /usr/bin?? I want to make sure to keep my directories orderly in my new Mac, and want to do it the right way from the start :)

It's standard to put applications in the Applications folder. There's usually a shortcut to it in Finder's sidebar.
