With the release of Windows 8 and last months preview release of Office 2013 paired with SharePoint 2013 many consultants and companies are scrambling to find features, benefits or return on investment to justify budget plans to migrate to the new platforms.

While writing this post, I discover an issue while migrating blog content to SharePoint Online. The issue was pictures associated with blog posts published using Live Writer (and so stored as attachments on SharePoint) were not migrated.

Only a week was needed to have confirmation of repro, details about the issue and get a fix. Whaou!!!
