Default [Q] Internal Storage

Just installed CM 11 which is about 210MB (as a zip file).

According to my phone, the internal storage is only 5.41GB. I would have expected something like 8GB-5%. I dont know wthether it's always been like this...

Any ideas, explanation etc?

It's because of the partitons of your phone
It's still the same as stock the advantage is that you can put more mods or apps into /system
