Moon currently has very minimal state, it just remembers how you set the toolbar modes (longitude/latitude grid on/off, and northern vs. southern hemisphere viewing location). Pressing Keep in any activity creates a new version of the current activity state in the Journal. I intend future versions of Moon to have more interesting and detailed states.
For what it's worth, I don't like the Keep feature, but it is a standard feature in Sugar at the moment for all activities. It causes much confusion and mis-understanding. It was an attempt at allowing versioning (e.g. Write a essay, click Keep, edit the essay again, click Keep, make more edits, click Keep, etc) so you could go back in the Journal to an earlier work, if you didn't like your changes, or perhaps review how some work you created has changed over time.
