1 maps or not maps?
maps.google is a map, BingMaps is a map OpenStreetMap is not a map ... "OpenStreetMap is a huge database, allows everybody to create maps according to his needs. OSM is made by people like you and free to use under an open license."
2 ... and OSM?
- ... John Doe thinks this is OpenStreetMap
- ... and there is a map with a "german style"
- ... and here a list of maps derived from the OpenStreetMap database. There should be something for everyone. ;-) ... and if not, then you just make the map yourself.
If you want to compare the quality - Left: GoogleMaps, Right: OpenStreetMap - Please note: the map(s) are zoomable! :)
