Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

maybe it's a simple question for most of you ,but it really confused me,does it have to use commend line tools to open it since i've seen somebody open the osm file by simple dragging? i can't remember the tool,can someone give me some clues?

There are a few tools to load osm data into a postgis db, the most commons being osm2pgsql, osmosis, and imposm. There are many different use cases; what tool and which options you use really depends on what you are trying to achieve.
