Daniel, I suppose that you didn't follow the discussion from the
beginning, so here is the excerpt of a mail from Han The Thanh which
he posted to the tex-fonts mailing list:

    Concerning Adobe Utopia, I did my best to try to find out
    the answer, but without success: I asked people at Adobe
    first and got a response saying that they have granted the
    font license to X Consortium, so now only X Consortium can
    grant the permission to modify these fonts. I wrote to X.Org
    and got a response saying that  my question is being processed
    and then nothing (it was a few months ago). So I gave it up.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
