Sorry, only Ubuntu is currently supported.

Since MAAS 1.7 (released in November 2014) it supports more operating systems than just Ubuntu.

From the release blog post:

Specifically, MAAS can now provision Windows Server 2012 RT/Hyper-V, CentOS, RHEL, SLES, and OpenSUSE. The installation is done using the same single-pass mechanism used to deploy Ubuntu, typically providing the user with a running system in under 8 minutes on an SSD (or around 25 minutes on an HDD).
