Yes, maps are definitely primary way how OSM data is used.

I just wanted to note that it is not only way how it is used.

Sure I use basic road routing capabilities too that stem from the data, but what makes it satisfactory for me to map more than just basic roads (which I indeed do a lot of) is that I see my data resulting in good looking and useful cartography (which today leaves some basic key things to be desired in my humble opinion).
