According to that recent thread on comp.text.tex  
<http://groups.google.fr/groups?hl=fr&lr=&ie=UTF 
-8&threadm=415EF4C4.22FE2E5%40quantentunnel.de&prev=/ 
groups%3Fnum%3D25%26hl%3Dfr%26lr%3D%26ie%3DUTF 
-8%26group%3Dcomp.text.tex%26start%3D25>, brought to our attention  
earlier today by Maarten Sneep, Y&Y is off business, at least  
temporarily, which leaves only the PC TeX option for MathTime, and no  
option at all for Lucida.

There's still (I hope) the Blue Sky TeX Systems option, but (at least  
when I purchased my fonts, years ago) only MathTime 1.1 is available,  
not MathTime Plus, and for both MathTime and Lucida the fonts arere  
provided on floppies in Mac OS 9 format, which means some conversion  
for use on OS X on a recent mac with no floppy driver.

HTH,
