PC-BSD has created some gui software that they add to their software
install which can also be installed from ports onto any freebsd system.
The utilities in sysutils/pcbsd-utils-qt5 include Disk Manager, Warden,
Control Panel, Firewall Manager, Life Preserver

Also Lumina is a new lightweight desktop, it's filemanager incorporates
support for zfs, easy access to snapshots of a file etc.
Lumina is available in x11/lumina

You can look over the PC-BSD docs to see features and screenshots
