Pretty sure you were under a rock or something.

Most modern code is client/server and needs a ton of dependencies, which can't be bundled into a single DLL due to license problems.

With that in mind, .NET begs separation of concerns, so during compilation, regardless of the type of code have, you end up with a gazillion Namespaced DLLs.

It would be wiser to have in Windows what NeXT, macOS and iOS started in 1988 and create single folder (*.app) masked as a self contained application where all *.so or *.dll would reside and any foreign code would simply be symlinked from source at install time. But that ship has sailed and not even UWP apps do that successfully.

So with that in mind, if you want clean code you must go the macOS route, else you'll notice that any #WinUI or Win32 code gets filled easily with DLL.

So
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Keep Calm and Keep Coding
