I agree with you. What you show here is good: since you're probably with
Eclipse for the long haul, and there will be other versions beyond Mars,
don't use the default workspace in the eclipse folder.
Since your projects would ultimately be under a source-code control
system like Git, the first time you create such a project you'll tell
Eclipse's New project wizard not to put the sources in the default place
(i.e.: in the workspace), but on a path more reasonable to your
filesystem and to the habits of those you work with, perhaps just as
you've shown here.
So, I'm more or less confirming what you're saying.
Hope this helps.
