Because other distributions have better support for brand-new consumer 
hardware. Especially, if you consider the lifetime cycle of CentOS which 
spans to 2014. Look at this not from the viewpoint of your mom, but from 
the computershop that wants to sell lots of PCs to very different people 
(which will expect to see *recent* software) and with (over the years) 
quite differing hardware.
