Numix Icon Theme Technic on my Fedora 23

Fedora 23 Workstation is a great desktop but let me tell you the icon theme is awful (sorry to say that :)). If you agree with me, you may change your icon theme to something else. There are many beautiful icons and theme available for Fedora 23. I just found Numix Icon Theme Technic which is just awesome. Technic is short for Technicolor which means we can change the icon color easily.

Here are some screenshots of my Fedora 23 Workstation with Numix Icon Theme Technic
