it's certainly not that dramatic: They can keep their computer and use
it for the possible purposes.
But one could tell them, that it will be impossible to run a lot of
useful programs on it.
It's then up to them to decide. Quite likely, a considerable number of
them will avoid LaTeX. But I would bet, that most of these would quite
soon quit using LaTeX also for other reasons. As teacher you can tell
your students, that the documents produced with Word are really ugly and
a pain to write and read. But if the students are not willing to follow
your advice, it's up to them. I wouldn't regard it as really bad for the
community to loose those students.
