Evening All,
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.
