The Minion Math fonts are OpenType fonts. The next release (March 2011,
hopefully) will include the OpenType MATH table. And ConTeXt support.
For ConTeXt I haven't tested yet what will work out of the box and what
will need additional support (e.g. to access additional characters
encoded in the PUA; to access the 4 weights and the optical sizes).

And yes, the fonts are commercial. But Minion itself is commercial as
well. Of course all support files (for ConTeXt, LaTeX, ...) are / will
be available for free.
