I haven't seen this mentioned around. A company in Germany called
GEOFABRIK are processing the OSM data nightly into shapefiles and
making them freely available at;
I've grabbed the Australia-oceania set which is about 70MB zipped.
I've got it running with an instance of Xastir on FreeBSD and a dbfawk
file custom built for it and it's quite good.
Worth a look, especially for those of us outside of North America
which is all most of the online maps cover.
