Tech agnostic means that the issue, skill set or other aspect being discussed is not specific to a single technology. The issue, skill set or other actually can be true or applied to any/multiple technologies. For example if a component is "operating system agnostic" it does not care what the operating system is. The opposite of agnostic is proprietary - this is when an issue, skill set or other is true for a specific technology. For example if a component is "operating system proprietary" that component will only work with that OS.
