Force eclipse to open xml when editing maven pom

Have you ever been annoyed by the fact that every time you try to edit maven pom in eclipse, it opens a GUI window? Not only the GUI is not much ussefull, but also it slows the loading of the pom quite a bit. Luckily it can be turned off.

Hint found here. Go to┬ápreferences > Maven > User Interface there is a check box for “Open XML page in the POM editor by default”. Uncheck it.
