JBoss Central "Editor"

JBoss Central is an editor that will show up when you install JBoss Tools and give you a central hub of getting started with the various wizards, quickstarts/project examples, jboss.org news/blogs and a way to easily install additional plugins from JBoss Tools team and others.

It shows up in Eclipse editor area when you start up Eclipse - if you don't want it to show on startup you can disable that in the preferences or under the "Settings" section.
