Return a table of numbers from 0 up to a some value. I'm facing this recurring task once in several years. Such periodicity induces me to invent solution once again but using contemporary features.

November 18:

This time I have succeeded to solve the task in one select:

declare @count int;

set @count = 1000;

with numbers(value) as
(
  select 0
  union all
  select value * 2 + 1 from numbers where value < @count / 2
  union all
  select value * 2 + 2 from numbers where value < (@count - 1) / 2
)
select
  row_number() over(order by U.V) value
from
  numbers cross apply (select 1 V) U;

Do you have a better solution?
