Member nameDescription
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkPointThis light is a point source. The light has a position in space and radiates light in all directions.
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkDirectionalThis light source is directional and is attached to a frame but appears to illuminate all objects with equal intensity, as if it were at an infinite distance from the objects. Directional light has orientation but no position, and it is commonly used to simulate distant light sources, such as the sun.

Directional lights are slightly faster than point lights, but point lights look a little better.
