The weakest attachment is driving from the bottom. Toenailing is actually very strong. You can stand a toenailed wall up even in a moderate wind and it will stand by itself. You cannot do this with a wall that has been nailed to the plate first and then stood up. You'd be surprised how hard those toenails come out. On another note, in some areas special tie downs and strapping is needed to withstand hurricane force winds.
