Well, it only beats it for item counts >= 1000000

What I mean is, i wonder if i can make a hashtable that beats out Microsofts, which performs far better than my b-tree (of course) with just a few thousand items or so - because it doesn't have to sort the keys.

a b-tree is one of the primary mechanisms for providing indexed searches in databases, which means the rows must come back in order (sorted, unlike hashtables) and quickly (b-trees that are implemented on disk can optimize disk access because of the way a b-tree is structured) no matter how many items.

A b-trees height stays relatively constant as items are added (it grows, but slowly)

so searching lots of rows still takes few comparisons.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
