Uninstall Subclipse from STS

Subversive plugin for STS is much better than subclipse svn plugin. Install subversive, and then uninstall subclipse by going to STS Help->'About SpringSource Tool Suite'->'Installation Details'->'Installed Software' and remove the ones with 'id' containing org.tigris.
Next navigate to STS plugin directory from the command line and run the following commands:
$ ls |grep org.tigris.subversion|xargs rm -rf
01 May 2012 Update: After working with this plugin for around three weeks, I find it difficult to make directory changes. I find it difficult to use STS with subversive plugin. I agree that it has got more options than subclipse, but when it comes to daily operations like commit, rename, delete directories, branching, it is a big mess (at least for me). So I am back to subclipse.
