Well, regarding Gentium, lools to be a good font for printing of books, 
magazine articles, but not too good for the screen, low-resolution monitors.

Regarding, Adobe's Myriad and Minion typefaces, they are copyright and 
sell for high prices. I don't think Adobe would permit distribution of 
them in Linux or any other OS. This is my opinion.
