  • I want to create a city map from osm source. I want to get osm information in the software and edit it. For example all the buildings in black and all the main roads in red.

You could use TileMill or even Mapnik but I personally would use QGIS. QGIS has a good Map Composer specifically for creating paper maps. It also has the ability to retrieve OSM data by area and so should provide everything you need in one package.
